Released in May 1992, As The Flower Withers was My Dying Bride's debut album.
With its dark and sinister atmospherics, poetic lyrics, and apocalyptic Doom Metal traits, the album received ecstatic reviews and immediately established MDB as a significant creative force.
The band have been a leading light of Doom Metal ever since. Influenced by acts such as Celtic Frost and Candlemass, MDB's heavy atmospheric sound has amassed a devoted worldwide following over the years and the band remain at the pinnacle of their powers and one of the most instantly recognisable metal bands.
